1. Keychron K2
- Price: $79.99
- Brand: Keychron
The Keychron K2 is one of the most highly recommended wireless keyboards out there, regardless of platform or device, due in part to its overall build quality and the tactile feel that accompanies a top-tier mechanical keyboard. Capable of freely switching between 3 connected devices with the press of a button, the Keychron K2 is versatile and happens to sport one of the longest battery lives of any mechanical keyboard out there. Plus it happens to look great.
- Price: $39.99
- Brand: Logitech
The Logitech K380 packs a lot of features inside of its compact and lightweight frame. Small enough to be as comfortable with a tablet as well as your MacBook Pro, the Logitech K380 can pair with up to 3 devices and features rounded, silent keys that some people might enjoy.
It also, perhaps surprisingly, manages to fit in a series of programmable media buttons that lends itself to multiple use-cases. If you’re looking for a portable, but the feature-dense keyboard that can pair with different operating systems and platforms simultaneously, the K380 might be the wireless keyboard for you.
- Price: $99.00
- Brand: Apple
Sometimes you just can’t beat old reliable. The Apple Magic Keyboard is the staunchly entrenched heavyweight of the wireless keyboard niche, and few keyboards are as tailor-made for a device like the Macbook Pro as the Magic Keyboard. With the solid build quality that feels like it’s made out of a Macbook Pro, compact media buttons and lightweight design.
The ease of integration with all Apple products and the tactile feel of the Magic Keyboard are the biggest selling points of the most famous of wireless keyboards for Mac.
4. Logitech MX
- Price: $99.99
- Brand: Logitech
At the same price point as the Magic Keyboard, the Logitech MX is a more heavy-duty, top-tier keyboard that is tailor-made for the Mac. Not only does it come with a full, mac-layout keyboard — Numpad included — it has the unique ability to join forces with a Logitech Flow-enabled mouse, intelligently switching between devices depending on where your cursor is — an ability no other keyboard on this list can boast of.
In terms of design, the Logitech MX provides the same rounded key design as the K380 and is backlit, making it a capable keyboard for gamers in their darkness-ridden gaming stations. All-in-all, the Logitech MX might be the best wireless keyboard for the Macbook Pro if you’re looking for something more heavy-duty and capable than the in-built keyboard and not something as portable as the K380.
5. Anne Pro 2
- Price: $89.00
- Brand: Anne Pro
If you’re a fan of mechanical keyboards and looking for a wireless keyboard capable of providing both the pleasing, tactile feel of the former and the versatile, connectivity of the latter, the Anne Pro 2 straddles both worlds with surprising competence.
The keyboard is, literally, just the meat of a standard laptop keyboard in mechanical form, with customizable key triggers and RGB backlighting but is compact enough to remain as portable as your iPad, Macbook Pro or another laptop. If you love mechanical keyboards but don’t want one as bulky as the usual affair, the Anne Pro 2 gives you the best of both worlds at a competitive price point.
- Price: $126.89
- Brand: Logitech
If you take ergonomics as seriously as build quality and functionality, the appropriately named Ergo K860 is well worth the extra cash you have to shell out — and might even pay for itself by preventing a trip to the physiotherapist. With a tented, split-keyboard design and extra-thick wristpad, the Ergo K860 is a wireless keyboard that keeps your wrists looser and at a more natural angle for extended typing sessions, preventing pain and injury.
If you’ve had Carpal Tunnel or other RSIs in the past and need a wireless keyboard for your Macbook Pro, the Ergo K860 is well worth your consideration.
7. iClever DK03
- Price: $32.99
You could think of the iClever Dk03 as something like a discount Magic Keyboard knockoff and wouldn’t be far from the truth. There are, however, two things that make the iClever worth your consideration beyond just the price tag: First, it is very close in design to the old-school, battery-powered Magic Keyboard that a lot of people still prefer (and that is typing this very article!) and second, it boasts dual-device functionality and a bevy of indicator lights and media keys for increased versatility.
As a keyboard itself, the scissor-switch key designs and full-keyboard make it as comfortable as it is functional, leaving you with great bang for your buck if you opt for the iClever DK03.
- Price: $19.99
- Brand: Arteck
The cheapest keyboards on this list, the Arteck HB030B is one of the best options for someone who wants a wireless keyboard that pairs as competently with their iPad as it does with their Macbook Pro. Super slim, the sleek and compact keyboard features backlit keys in a variety of colors for those who appreciate the game aesthetic but need a wireless keyboard as mobile as their Macbook or iOS device.
With the smallest size and a six-month rechargeable battery life, the Arteck HB030B is one of the better choices on the market for those in search of portability and versatility.
